Ready to be presented at Embedded World 2018 and based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, the Mercury+XUI is the fastest SoC module released so far by Enclustra.
In the module lurk up to 747,000 systems logic cells divided across 6 Arm processors, one GPU and up to 294 user I/Os. Built-in interfaces include:
  • 2x Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB 3.0 and USB 2.0
  • 16x Multi Gigabit Transceiver (MGT) with speeds of up to 12.5 Gbit per second
  • 4x PCIe Gen2
 
With up to 4 GByte of DDR4 SDRAM with bandwidths of 19.2 GByte per second and ECC, as well as 16 GByte eMMC flash memory. All integrated into a footprint of just 74 x 54mm.

According to Enclustra, the SoC module can be a development and prototyping platform when used with the Mercury+ PE1-300 or Mercury+ PE1-400 baseboards. Other expansion options are provided by the LPC/HPC FMC connectors on the PE1 base board, which are compatible with a range of plug-in cards for ADCs, DACs, motor control cards and RF links.

The Enclustra Build Environment can compile the Enclustra SoC modules with an integrated Arm processor, with the module and base board selected by a graphical interface. Enclustra Build Environment downloads the appropriate Bitstream, First Stage Boot Loader (FSBL) and the required source code before U-Boot, Linux and the root file system, based on BusyBox, are compiled.

At embedded world 2018, Enclustra are in Hall 3-210. Elektor is in Hall 4A, Booth 646.
